Looking ahead to our goal, especially in tough times

How is it finishing our History Blitz? So far it is hard.

I have driven halfway down the east coast which hasn’t afforded me much reading time, and when I have had the chance, other things have come up. I’ve seen grandparents and visited quite a bit with them and of course I wouldn’t want to limit that time that is increasingly rare to go off and read. My kids have been sick, which is just another drain on time and energy.

I have excuses. But, I have had chances before bed and didn’t have my priorities then. When my wife took some turns to drive, I could’ve then, too. I have excuses, but they are not quite good enough. Perhaps I don’t have the same time I do other weeks, but there is still time, nonetheless. This is no easy task, but few things of great worth often are.

It is hard, but I am excited to keep working hard reading and spending time with God in his word. I am looking ahead toward the goal of having all of the Bible read by the end of the year. It is especially especially in challenging times that I need to be reminded of the “why” and keep focused on our purpose. We know God will bless us through the reading of his word and we will be all the more equipped to follow him and serve his will in the world.
